Before joining this course i was not aware the different methods, techniques and tools of data analytics. This course gave me an immense knowledge bank to understand, read and represent the data
A very good and a relevant course for folks who are willing to learn Business analytics. Solving a real world problem helps relate and apply your course knowledge which i an added advantage

More data can be provided to implement solutions to real business scenarios.

If data could be shared, it would make the capstones project more practical.

A relatively, satisfying conclusion, to the journey.

Even do the Research subject was very interesting, this capstone was a total disappointment.
The Capstone did not offer very much support and the final review was performed for peers without previous knowledge and experience, receiving peer's complaints due to the fact that many got bad grading.
Also, many peers complaint about the image of the Specialization Certificate for not being designed professionally and many felt that they petitions where overlook.

Very nice and interesting subject. Updated information materials. Peer reviewing is not sufficient for grading a Capstone Project. A raw case + hands-on quizzes would help frame/evaluate the capstone project, instead of having a dedicated Wharton personnel to grade presentations.

Good to be able to apply the lessons from the individual courses in one, single project, but I missed having actual teachers to review my work as well
By Sangeeta V•
the capstone project had peer reviews, requesting you to consider executive feedback, otherwise i am not able to actually judge the quality of my work
By Rami S•
good closing course but peer reviewing and no prof is little untraditional.
By Jason G•
Lots of the instructions and expectations were not clear.
By Ramesh C C•
Not happy with the structure of the course and the details provided on how to succeed on the course. I had to research a lot online to get info on peer graded assignments and how the course works. Coursera help support was good. I got information from them as well on chat support. Lot of which could have been provided within the course itself.

I was disappointed by the Capstone. I expected we would get some data set we would use to apply the analytics skills we learned. Instead we got an "open-ended" problem description with few if any input on Yahoo's operations. The only data available was public data (e.g. annual report, executive interviews, etc.).

The whole course is nice and there were lot of new things to learn. I am not from an IT background but still found it very useful. However the capstone was a bit of disappointment. I believe they should have included some teaching authority to check the Capstone projects for my better understanding. The whole capstone is reviewed by peers which is great but as per certification I believe there should be some professional help too. I even tried to speak to someone over the phone but there was no number available. I ended up with chatting with some one on the help center but that was not very helpful either. The course content for operation analytics and People Analytics were indeed very useful. Thanks.

The preceding courses were interesting and helpful. This capstone project lacked substance. The project did not allow itself to apply many of the concepts learned throughout the course. It's almost exclusively about customer analytics. I would not be surprised if Yahoo! worked with Wharton and Coursera to launch this course in order to crowd-source ideas on how to turn around the company.
